    Unlike what some Israelis seem to think, Iran is not Governed by Fools. The Iranian nation has been around long enough to have picked up some sense. They know that there are countries just itching ti " Bomb them back to the stone age". So you can be sure that whenever the war starts, it was not started by Iran. Most sensible people know that Israel can NEVER make a first strike on Iran with Nuclear bombs. Of course once Israel has attacked Iran and the war starts to go very very badly for Israel, then and only then will Israel CHOOSE to NUKE Iran, That choice will unfortunately will spell doom for a lot more countries than just Iran and Israel. Some cool heads need to start asserting themselves in Israel and to a lesser extent in America. Be advised, the Americans know the PRICE their interests will pay for any bombimg of Iran by Israel. The poster " another teacher " is absolutely right to ask his question. I hope he was bright enough to be asking that of the Israeli Political and Military establishment.. Errol L.
